...asks for a room.
The receptionist does her thing and before you know it the man is checked in. He's given his room number and a key, the porter kindly offers to assist
him to the room and offers to help the man with his baggage.
So the porter takes the man to his room and gets him settled. About an hour later the phone at the reception desk rings, the receptionist answers and
it's the man she checked in about an hour earlier.
The man moans that his room is really awful and makes a number of valid complaints that the reception knows to be genuine and they're quite common.
So the receptionist offers him his choice of any room in the house. she tells him to pick a number between 1 and 500.
The man, unable to hide his joy at this offer of a free upgrade to any room he wants thinks for a minute. If he's lucky he could end up in the top
room in the house, 5-star, all mod cons. Or if he's unlucky he might end up in a room worse than the one he's currently in.
It's a gamble...so the man, after having mulled it over, kindly thanks the receptionist and opts to stay in the room that he is in.
This isn't a joke, it's an analogy.
The people who voted to remain in Europe wanted to keep the room they were in.
The people who voted to leave decided to take the gamble.
Speculation is all well and good but the reality is we just don't know how this will pan out. nobody can predict a thing.
All that matters is that the people have spoken. Already there are petitions and demands for another referendum, like the Scottish independence
referendum. This is like the petulant child in class demanding a recount of the votes because the fact that they lost is so unbearable.
More people want to try a new room - what is important is to think about is the room, not the process of chosing another one at random.
Do I like the room we're in right now? No.
Do I think a lot of changes must be made? Too right I do. Don't most of us?
Your room ain't going to change if you choose to stay in it, is it?
This is more than just a nation deciding to turn its back on a failed EU. This is a message, people want change. And if they want it bad enough, they
can get it. But they need to have the unmentionables to go for it.
I see other countries thrive outwith the EU. Why the constant pessimism? Why the lack of faith in each other?
The people who want to remain must like this room. They must not want change, how can you change your position by not moving?
Do people even realise that the mood of the nation, the negative intent of a nation probably has some negative effect on us as a nation? We'll talk
ourselves into a depression at this rate. You can't make an omlette without breaking a few eggs...I've messed up a few omlette's in my time but I've
made some awsome ones, also.
Everyone always wants to focus on the negative, what will or might happen. I'm guilty of it too, I reckon we all are.
I'm sick of seeing homeless people on the street. I'm sick of people ignoring the standards of education diminishing. I'm sick of greedy, mostly white
British benefits scroungers on television showing the rest of the UK how it's done. I'm sick of kids running amok on public transport while ignorant
parents are hypnotised by their phones.
The lazy, inept, selfish greedy culture that is prevailing...that most people don't seem to care about.
Sick of crap social housing and dirty estates and schemes, sick a failing healthcare system that not too many people seem to care about or want to try
and fix. It's not the politicians who are to blame it's us for putting up with it.
For fighting among ourselves about who we should elect not to fix the things we're pissed off about.
I hope this is the first fall in the proverbial domino effect. I hope the EU crumbles into an unjustifiable handful of nations and disintegrates into
dust. I hope this happens before the silly Scots have another referendum.
